“My Dad Rocks” Father’s Day Card

I’m a huge fan of shaped cards and with a little playing you can create a shaped card out of nearly any shape you want.  Today I am going to share a fun sunglasses shaped card.

“My Dad Rocks” Sunglasses Card Supplies:

Supplies

Step 1: Use an electronic cutting maching to cut out a sunglasses card.  To make a shape into a card you should: Mirror the image above the original and then weld the top edges together.

Technique Tip: Core’dinations cardstock cuts beautifully on the Silhouette Cameo. If you notice in my picture below my edges are a little rough!  To avoid that make sure to do the following settings: Set your blade at 4 (I had it set at 2 here before I realized it was too late), your speed at 3, thickness at 33, and set it to Double-Cut.  This will give you a clean cut.  But if you goof up like me and forget to change your blade to the right setting, a little sanding with our Sand-it Gadget will take care of the rough edges!

Step 2: Use the lens space to trace and cut out some lenses on the Metallic Silver paper.  Cut them out and emboss them.

Step 3: Add the lenses to the card and attach a sentiment at the top.  I used this cut file for my sentiment.

Step 4:  Add some finishing touches, a couple of stars, some white outlining, and you are done!

It’s all ready to add a fun message inside to Dad!

Father’s Day Necktie Gift Bag

Here’s a cute way to give Dad his treats this Father’s Day.  This shirt gift bag is quick and easy enough to get the kiddos in on the action as well.  Think what fun it would be to have an ugly tie contest (and Dad wouldn’t be stuck wearing it!)

shirtFather’s Day Necktie Gift Bag Supplies:

Step 1.  Cut paper 10″ x 11 1/2″

Step 2.  With the kraft side facing up, the the short edge lined up across the top fence, score at 2″.

Step 3.  Turn the paper a quarter turn, counter-clockwise and score at 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 6″, and 8″.  Go to the first large block (between 2 1/2″ and 6″), score every 1/4″ – just down to the horizontal score, to create the pinstripes for the front of the shirt.

Step 4.  Turn the paper over, so that the color is facing upwards.  Score at 4 1/2″ and 10″

Step 5.  Clip the tabs at the bottom.

Step 6.  Sand the pin-stripes.

Step 7.  Fold along the scores to assemble the bag.

004

Step 8.  Pinch the top of the bag together, and cut an inch in on each side.

005

Step 9.  Fold the tabs in to form the collar.

Step 10.  Hand cut a tie.  Adhere to the bag. Secure the collar using double sided tape.

Now the fun will just be thinking what goodies to put in your bag!

We have another FABULOUS day for you today.  We have some MORE  inspirational Father’s Day project for you today.

We love dads and the men in our lives.

Leica Forrest created this uber cool layout using masking and the backside of her

Cosmo Cricket Core’dinations Core Impressions.

Leica flipped her Core Impressions over and use the backside and then masked her title.

Masking on Core!!! WE LOVE IT! Looks fabulous, doesn’t it? Just another way that Core’dinations can be your “go to” cardstock for ANY project.

Here is a detail shot for you.  LOVE this idea of masking on Core. Stay tuned for some more tips and tricks on this technique in the next few weeks! 😉

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a fun Father’s day. Celebrating the men in our lives is such a treat!

I wanted to share a quick last minute Father’s day gift that I made utilizing some Core’dinations and October Afternoon that would be perfect for any Holiday for your man, friends or family. My husband travels Monday through Friday during the week and we miss him while he is gone so the point of this gift was to have something for him to carry with him in his laptop bag as a reminder of how much we love him and are proud of him.

Here is the badge. Every Dad needs to have one of these, don’t you think? I used two different kinds of Gray Core’dinatins cardstock on here. For the badge I used Weathered Tin and the core is a lighter shade of gray. Then for the Card/Mini book, I used Stormy Gray which has a white Core.

And the back. Just adhere a safety pin to the back he can display it proudly:

And the front of the Card/Mini book:

And the inside {super simple}:

And here is Henry modeling it for you. Please don’t mind his Cheeto infused shirt:
